Each player will be asked to solve the cube five times, with times recorded to two decimal places and a players score being the average of their middle three times (ie the fastest and the slowest are ignored).  If this average is tied between two competitors, the competitor with the best single places above the other.  Once all players have posted their score the top 10 will contest the final.  The format is the same as for the initial rounds except that the scrambles will be the same for each player to ensure a level playing field.
